As so many of today’s medical frontiers exist on an overwhelmingly complex cellular and molecular level, the elucidation of biological mechanisms is an increasing challenge. The use of creative biomedical visualization is an essential tool.
The ability to create 3 dimensional imagery and animation has dramatically changed the experience of learning. A 3D representation of a cell, or a biological pathway, imparts a more fully realized and deeper understanding than does a diagram, or a description. Imagine for example, being able to dive down into a 3 dimensional cell and move through its interior, zooming down even further to see exactly how and where a drug molecule acts. This is an exciting and immersive experience that stimulates not only the intellect, but also the emotions. Creative biomedical visualization can trigger a sense of wonder and curiosity that greatly promotes understanding.
